TIME — An Acrostic poem

Time flies, and time goes,
I
n every single blink.
M
ysteriously upon you it bestows,
E
merge now or at least approach the brink.

An acrostic poem, sometimes called a name poem is one that uses a word or phrase (usually the theme or the underlying subject matter of the poem) written vertically. Each letter of the word/phrase then acts as the beginning letter for a new line of the poem. Whatever is written using each letter must connect to the subject matter.

The first known acrostics date back to ancient times: the name “acrostic” was first used to describe the prophecies of the Erithraean Sibyl, which were written on leaves arranged so that the first letter on each leaf formed a word.

  2. Nicely done! I first learned of acrostic poems when I read Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie. It starts with an acrostic to his son. I just think they are cool!

  4. Brilliant Ankita.. I have come across such a poem for the first time. I used to think that acrostics are a tool for memorizing boring subjects. You have changed my thinking. Good one..
